JFilm and East Suburbs Jewish Connection sponsor showing of ‘Eli & Ben’
JFilm, in collaboration with the East Suburbs Jewish Connection, will show the director Ori Ravid’s film, “Eli & Ben,” at Destinta Theatres, North Versailles, Sunday, Oct. 24, 7 p.m. The film, in Hebrew with subtitles, is 89 minutes.
Discussion will follow the film.
Israeli heartthrob Lior Ashkenazi plays Ben, a man searching for his identity in this universal story about truth and honesty. When Ben is accused of white-collar corruption, his 12-year-old son, Eli, doesn’t believe it and defends his father at all costs. As Eli’s relationship with the detective in charge of the case (a winning performance by Tzahi Grad) deepens, he is forced to ponder some of life’s big questions. “Eli & Ben” raises important moral issues for all of us, young and old (ages 12 and up).
